Taking Care of Your Teeth Can Help Your Heart and so Much More!
By: Bruce Brightman
When I was a kid, my dentist and my Mom would tell me I had to brush my
teeth at least twice a day; if I didn't, I would lose my teeth. It worked!
I've always thought oral hygiene was extremely important and have done my
best to keep my mouth in the best shape possible. I go to the dentist every
six months, brush two to three times per day, and try to floss at least
once per day. From time to time, I’ll swish around some mouthwash, too.
As I got older, I began to realize, brushing and flossing my teeth
regularly was reducing my risk of other health issues that have been linked
to poor oral hygiene. In recent years, there have been some studies that
link gum disease and poor oral hygiene to heart disease, hypertension, and
cancer. The links are based on the notion that poor oral health causes
inflammation where bacteria gets inside the body, making its way into the
bloodstream and then causes further health problems.
A recent review by the American Heart Association concluded that oral
health does not directly affect heart disease. That being said, the fact
that there isn't a direct cause and effect relationship doesn't mean it
might not play a role in some way, shape, or form in the development of
other health problems.
When it comes to my health—and something as easy as oral hygiene—I’d rather
be safe than sorry. Practicing good oral hygiene can save you lots of money
and potentially protect you from other health concerns. Here are a few
basic tips on how to take care of your mouth:
· Brush your teeth for about two or three minutes at least twice a day,
especially before bed.
· Floss your teeth at least once per day to remove any food particles stuck
where your brush can't reach
· Replace your brush every few months or when the bristles begin to fray.
· Try to visit your dentist at least every 12 months, but every six months
is much better and highly recommended.
